Easy Italian Bread Sticks are super delicious and a breeze to make! You'll love this semi-homemade recipe using frozen dough.
Delicious and Easy Italian Bread Sticks are great for pasta night or game day! You can use a store-bought seasoning mix, or your can whip up your own in just a few minutes.

At restaurants, I'm a sucker for bread sticks. Well, I'm pretty much a sucker for carbs in general. Making bread sticks from scratch seems very daunting, but it's actually pretty easy when you use frozen dinner rolls to start. So easy, in fact, even the kids can help!
Just let the rolls thaw to room temperature, roll them out, add your favorite toppings and bake. It's a simple way to dress up your meal, and an easy way to impress your family and guests.
